Twin Shadow Reflects on Prince’s Legacy & Ambiguity: Interview

FUSE TV - Twin Shadow Reflects on Prince’s Legacy & Ambiguity: Interview

Prince’s death last Thursday, April 21, was a personal blow to many fans, as the legend’s passing at the age of 57 marked the loss of a hero in and out of music. For George Lewis Jr., the mastermind of Twin Shadow, Prince was more than an artist he looked up to: He was an inspiration for a Dominican-American kid struggling with who he was.

“I’ve always had a hard time defining what I do,” the 33-year-old Lewis tells Fuse, “and I had a hard time growing up defining what race I was. My whole life was like, the black kids asking me if I was white or black, and the white kids being like, ‘You’re definitely not white.’ That was my whole growing up, and I always felt like I belonged to everything, or that I belonged to nothing.”
